The two immutable truths of retail banking are:

  1. The customer is at the heart of retail banking.
  2. Knowing the customer and driving profitability through this knowledge is the lifeblood of retail banking.

However, increased competition, advent of technology and proliferation of channels to service the customer, have led to the following:

Increased usage of impersonal electronic services
Access to low cost electronic services has led to banks operating with a widespread and diffuse customer base. This has in turn led to:

  • Lower customer intimacy because of the impersonal nature of electronic channels 
  • Reduced switching costs between different banks 
  • Increased chances of fraud and credit risk

Low customer intimacy level along with the security issues related to electronic services like Internet banking increase the potential for fraudulent activities like money laundering.

Shrinking opportunity window to know and influence Customers. This has led to reduced time window for marketing products and services. The graphic shows the relevance of an event (such as a promotional event) to a customer as a function of time elapsed after the event. This shows that customer interest peaks and falls rapidly. This makes it absolutely necessary for banks to optimally leverage all available customer touch points so as to be able to influence the customer.

In short, these points amount to a reduced knowledge of customer behavior. Banks worldwide have responded to this challenge by using modeling and decision theory based solutions. Some of the issues addressed are: assessing life cycle value of customers, designing focused marketing campaigns to reduce cost and improve retention, improving in-bank service levels, modeling credit risks and scientifically determine risk capital and so on
